Some of the strongest seniors in town can be found at the Bernice Fontaneau Senior Wellness Center in DC’s Petworth neighborhood. It’s no wonder, given Bernice Fontaneau empowers seniors in need with a wide range of health and social services.
It is this holistic, multi-pronged approach to helping seniors that makes it an ideal hub for the Capital Area Food Bank’s Grocery Plus program. Through Grocery Plus, the CAFB can regularly provide healthy groceries to seniors who may face hunger without them.
While on a recent visit to Bernice Fontaneau, we managed to catch up with a Grocery Plus participant who was kind enough to discuss the value of the program and her activities at the center.
We are happy to serve Cynthia and many other seniors at Bernice Fontaneau. We hope to continue expanding our reach and ensure all seniors in the Washington metro area have access to nourishing meals. Please consider a contribution today to give older adults the boost they need to stay well and remain Senior Strong.
